Former Gunner looking to get back into football at 36

18 months after last kicking a ball as a professional player, Mathieu Flamini is set to make a return to football, Sun Sports claims.

The Frenchman is one of Arsenal fans’ favourites after helping the Gunners to win multiple FA Cups during his time at the club.

He last played for the Spanish side, Getafe who released him in 2019 at the end of the 2018/19 season.

He has been without a team since that time, but at 36, the report claims that he has offered his services to former Serie A side, Brescia.

The Italian side currently plays in Serie B and they recently had Mario Balotelli under their wings.

They were relegated at the end of last season and an immediate return to the Italian top-flight will be ideal for them.

Flamini hasn’t played football for some time, but he might be able to help them.

During his time at Arsenal, he won the FA Cup in 2005 and 2014, and he was part of the Arsenal team that lost to Barcelona in the 2006 Champions League final.

He was also a runner up for the UEFA Cup with Marseille in 2004 and won the Community Shield with Arsenal in 2014.

    For me midfield of Flamini, Fabregas, Rosicky and Haleb was the best midfield ever for Arsenal. Beautiful football by very talented midfiledrs and the understanding these 4 had was just awsom. Best of luck to Flamini for his future.

      Better than Pires, Petit,Vieira and Ljungberg?

        It’s about personal choice so yes for me that was the best Midfield ever for Arsenal. For me this midfiled was the best to total football. Midfiled of Viera, pires, Gilberto and jungberg for me take second place as they played with different style and dynamic, as this was based more on quick end to end stuff.

    He wasn’t a fan favorite
    Bad guy, always waiting for his contract to expire
    AW made a mistake bringing him back and leaked goals

    No way for him to come and train at Colney

    I thought he was great player in his first stint with us but bombed when he returned. Good for him for wanting to play again after making millions outside the game but I think his time in top flight football is over. Good luck to him though.

      If definitely concur with that Declan- first time around he was excellent

    What has this story got to do with Arsenal and therefore JA? NO RELEVANT MENTION OF OUR CLUB IN THIS ARTICLE, SO WHY WRITE IT?
    The truth, however, is that this site is no longer about Just Arsenal. All sorts of other things are discussed, as well as Ozil, and that is fine by me personally, as a I passionately believe in free speech.

    But I do therefore query the justification for it being called Just Arsenal. You cannot haveit both ways; either it is or is not Just about things Arsenal. I hope it is not about just Arsenal. It is the title that misleads!

      Maybe it is really becoming too boring for the Admins having to discuss only Ozil to stir the waters… It has become too boring that they really don’t know what to publish any longer…

      They could consider publishing “Flamini to unlock Ozil’s potentials”…
